Momma Cat is looking at her collection of 18 inch Madame Alexander dolls, and she thinks they are far more attractive than American Girl dolls! The American Girl dolls do have a lot of great clothes and accessories that are very well made! But, Momma Cat has to say, the dolls are not that pretty!
Take for example Momma Cat's Asian doll, Misumi (meaning pure, beautiful, in Japanese). She has been featured on Momma Cat's blog a few times, because she is so exquisite, and she's Momma Cat's favorite! Look at how beautiful her face is! She has shiny long black hair too!

Below is a picture of Misumi in her brand new clothes. Momma Cat made Misumi's underwear, corduroy dress, and hair accessory. She also designed and crocheted Misumi's shoes. The only thing she didn't make are Misumi's tights. Momma Cat bought the tights from Doll Secrets

Madame Alexander 18 inch dolls are infinitely more affordable than American Girl dolls too! So, if you're on a budget (who isn't?), you can buy a very nice new doll for about $35-$85, as opposed to $115, and have some money left over to buy more doll clothes, or shoes, or whatever you want! You can find some very nice used dolls on eBay too, if you're willing to do a little work!
Momma Cat has bought several used Madame Alexander 18 inch dolls off of eBay and has had very good results!
Every year Momma Cat creates a few items to enter into the Multnomah County Fair. She does this mainly because it's fun, but also because she likes winning those luscious blue ribbons!
This year Misumi will be one of her entries. Wish Momma Cat and Misumi luck!
Wish Momma Cat luck!
